Erin Gee / Magdalena Molinari
Sensitive Superpositions, 2022
In Sensitive Superpositions artists Erin Gee (Canada) and Magdalena Molinari (Argentina) use verbal suggestion, sound, color and shape as a means to dissolve binary oppositions, using aesthetic languages of VR immersion while poetically referencing quantum physics, perception, loop movement, and hyperobjects while invoking a post-subjective orientation. In the work, the viewer explores a slowly undulating landscape of atmospheric color and virtual light sculptures. A voice murmurs subliminal, poetic, and sensitive sonic “triggers,'' abstractly inviting the viewer to depart from their subjective self. The sensual minimalism of Sensitive Superpositions interrogates attention, loops, and information, working the subconscious into a critical and receptive state through “tech poetry.” A disembodied voice that says she is “mother, father, lover, and best friend,” directly addresses the viewer and guides their journey through a digital landscape, their movements activating difference in a sonic field of whispers, crinkles, and light chanting.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Erin Gee is a multidisciplinary Canadian artist who applies the human voice to poetic and sensorial technologies, likening the vibration of vocal folds to electricity and data across systems, or vibrations across matter. Her musical practice is characterized by whispered vocals and lushly textured electroacoustic music heavily influenced by the sounds and structures of ASMR. Moving between VR, AI, performance, robotics, networked performance, interactive sculpture, and music composition, Gee is a DIY expert in affective biofeedback, implicating the body of the listener as part of her cybernetic systems in place. Through principles of emotional labor, emotional measurement, emotional performance, and emotional reproduction, she emphasizes the power of unconscious sensory programming, and seeks to dissolve the divisions between emotion and reason. Her work has been shown at venues such as MacKenzie Art Gallery (CA), Toronto Biennale (CA), MUTEK (CA-AR-ES), Broodthaers Society of America (NYC), NRW Forum (Düsseldorf) and Ars Electronica (AT).
Magdalena Molinari is an architect, visual artist and has a master's degree in electronic arts. Combining electronics, programming, light, color and video, her works explore the relationship between control systems and spatial and material devices to create walkable light installations generating experiences of "pure visuality". In 2010 she graduated as an Architect from the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Urbanism of the UBA. From 2010 to today, she has studied electronics and programming in independent institutions and is self-taught. In 2017, she won a scholarship for a two-month residency at an art center in Quebec, Canada where she developed a system for translating digital video into a matrix of light points. Since 2019 she belongs to the international platform of digital artists Amplify DAI. In 2020 she obtained her Postgraduate degree at UNTREF.
